i want to be different... *
was the title of my 2013 ArtPrize entree... seen in this short video from the monroe center street exit of the grand rapids art museum
other titles suggested by people on the street: "stupid", "that is not art, i have one just like it in my garage", "la bamba" referencing a version of famous mexican folk song of that title... "para subir al cielo se necesita una escalera grande y otra chiquita." i was also asked if i was a ladder day saint?
ladder suspended 180 ft from the street, chosen as one of the top five, in the use of urban space category, by artprize juror eva franch gilabert (ooaa).
blueprints for permits and insurance done by fishbeck, thompson, carr & huber (engineering), installed by windemuller electric, and the ladder(s) generously donated by the werner ladder company
